LOT 1701 is an open-air cultural market as well as New Orleans' first set of rotating storefronts that offer affordable pop-up spaces to small-business owners, artists, designers, and entrepreneurs looking to sell and offer unique goods or services.
The lot is centrally located at 1701 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. in a developing neighborhood that is home to other thriving businesses, restaurants, retailers, and non-profit organizations.
Vendors are able to rent the creatively designed tiny homes on a daily or weekly basis, providing them with business exposure and direct access to their customers in a forward-thinking retail environment.
The aim of LOT 1701 is to propel small-business owners as well as local artists and designers into launching and establishing their own brands and storefronts. LOT 1701 hopes to develop a local customer base for these up and coming entrepreneurs so they may become permanent tenants in future developments along the historic Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.
